Planeview is a neighborhood in SE Wichita that was built during WWII. It housed aircraft workers thus the name of Planeview not Plainview.

Planeview was one of four neighborhoods built to house all of the aircraft workers that came to Wichita during WWII.

Lyndon, could you put that image in the photo section? Links tend to be broken over time.
